Shop fronts are often the best advertisement for a retail business in Edinburgh. If they look clean, neat and professional, customers are more likely to venture inside.
On the other hand, if the paint is flaking or faded, or the window frames and doors are patchy and stained, most people will keep walking. So, Edinburgh shop owners need to do something about their existing metal shop fronts (or any other material). Complete replacement is expensive and the budget is limited.
At Sketch Spray, our Edinburgh team are aware of the importance of creating a positive impression. We can help you to create the wow factor necessary to draw potential customers off the street and in through your door. We can also save you a large sum of money.
And we can do this with our professional shop front spraying services.
If this appeals to you, read on to discover exactly how Sketch Spray can help you.
It's a tried and tested method used by many successful high street chains, for one thing.
Shop front spray painting provides a perfectly smooth finish (with no brush marks) across the entire surface of your existing shop front, which looks amazing. It's the best way of upgrading the outside of your premises without going through the expense, inconvenience and upheaval of a full refit.
Let's look at the benefits:
An average shop front refit will cost somewhere in the region of £6,000, whereas shop front spraying will be a fraction of this, usually around 70% cheaper.
Keeping costs down has always been essential, but has become even more important in these times of heightened economic uncertainty. Sketch Spray shop front spraying services could make all the difference to your bottom line.
If you recently took ownership of a property that's in desperate need of refurbishment, then shop front spraying is a perfect solution.
A shop front refit can take days or weeks, and during much of that time, your property will be off limits due to dust, noise and health and safety rules.
With Sketch Spray onsite shop front spray painting, there's minimal downtime as the process is quick and can be scheduled to take place outside of business hours. That means you can carry on working and leave the hard work to us.
We use the latest spray painting techniques to ensure perfect results efficiently and quickly, leaving you to reap the benefits of a sparkling new shop front.
If your shop is situated in a busy area it may be better for us to work during a quieter time, as we will need to erect barriers around the spraying zone.
Our paint system is extremely durable, with a ten-year manufacturer's guarantee that gives you peace of mind.
Your shop front will be guarded against the worst of the weather, including harmful UV light, and will stay looking smart for at least a decade.
Choose a colour that fits your brand or create an eye-catching custom colour, it's up to you. You can browse our RAL and British Standard colour charts or ask us for advice in picking a good one.
You can also choose between three different finishes; satin, gloss or matte. Satin is generally the most popular as it has a 30% shine, as opposed to matte at 0% and gloss at 100%.
Satin is also great for covering up flaws in UPVC cladding.
The Sketch Spray team will prepare the surface ready for spraying, masking any areas that need to be protected from overspray. Bare aluminium shop fronts may have to be treated before spraying, and all surfaces, no matter what type, must be thoroughly cleaned and degreased.
Usually, three coats are applied and these dry very quickly, usually being touch-dry within 30 minutes. The paint takes another 24 hours to set hard. In theory, we can complete the job in two days, depending on the size and complexity of the project.
Once they have checked the work over and removed all masking tape and sheets, the team will tidy up the site and get the job signed off.
It may be necessary to use mobile elevated working platforms (MEWPS) to provide a safe, stable working area. All our employees using such equipment will be fully trained and hold relevant certificates.
We can apply our paint to any type of shop front in retail and office environments, including the following:
Essentially, we are happy to use our skills wherever they are needed.
Our specialist coatings can be applied to the following substrates:
We can also apply them to an existing hand-painted finish.
Each substrate needs a different treatment, but our paint technicians are trained in how to deal with them all, so you can be confident that they will complete the job to your satisfaction.
These surfaces include automatic doors, windows, roller shutters, plinths, fascias and cornices.
